Every quarter, stock pickers at investment firm Gabelli & Co. come up with five value stocks that are trading way below their intrinsic worth. It's a nervy and challenging task, especially because the Gabelli analysts identify the catalysts they believe would catapult the shares to their utmost potential. And each quarter, their choices deliver enviable results.The Gabelli team has been picking what it calls its "Focus Five" stocks since Jan. 31, 2006, and within that time span their calls have advanced a mighty 168.6%, outdistancing by a wide margin the Standard & Poor's 500 stock index, which lost 3.7% in that period. During the previous quarter (Aug. 1 to Oct. 29), the Focus Five also outperformed the S&P 500, with a gain of 13.53% vs. S&P's 7.41% gain.
